Each year, talented young writers hone their skills in the company of like-minded peers at Young Writers' Day (YWD). Year 10 and 11 students from Greater Western Sydney schools gather to hear a keynote address from a prominent author, with the opportunity for Q&A. They then take part in two workshops each, with a wide choice of topics across different genres and aspects of writing. All the workshops are run by published authors, including many award-winners.

Date: Wednesday 26 September
Time: Morning workshops 10:20 - 12:05
